¡Hola! Today, March 8th, is International Women's Day. I could write volumes of what I've been through in life as a woman: bullying, sexual harassment, judgement, the "you can't do that", etc.; but, I'm not going to. Why? Because that is all in the past. Today I'm a stronger woman who is determined to guide all other women through even the toughest times. Or, just help her out picking out clothes and makeup that make her feel like the beautiful woman she is. A more self-confident woman is a stronger woman! In the video below, I reflect and share some thoughts on what it is like to be woman in today's world. I hope this post inspires you.

There is always more to be done but I think the most important thing we can do right now is stay UNITED. We fight our own daily battles but together we have a stronger voice.

This video was prepared in collaboration with other Puerto Rican bloggers for International Women's Day. Check out that video out here:

What does it mean to YOU to be a woman in 2018? Let me know below!

  1. That dress is gorgeous!!
    I love that you're promoting being a strong woman rather than just talking about admiral women, we all need to do our bit!


  2. I totally agree that we shouldn't look at the past but at the future or even better at NOW! We are strong women, and hope that every single woman in this world could feel like this sooner or later. xx

    1. Thank you for your comment! I think it will take all of us standing together to slowly make every woman feel a part of this and feel stronger!

  4. When you consider women fashion clothes, you have a tendency to trust that it is less delicate to cost. Shapewear for women
